Official E3 Trailer for FIFA 14

By Jonathan Barnes, 5 years ago
As one might expect from an EA press conference at E3, considerable time was invested into their many sports franchises. FIFA got its moment in the sun with a new trailer showing off some Pre-Alpha footage and player interviews for FIFA 14.

Utilizing the added processing power of the Xbox One, FIFA 14 will boast four times the decision making ability over previous generations of games and allow for features like "Pro Instincts" which will produce human-like reactions, anticipation, and instincts in addition to "Precision Movement" which we already covered here.

David Rutter, Executive Producer of the EA SPORTS FIFA franchise is excited about the innovation that this new generation will afford:

Innovation is the engine that drives our FIFA team and this year we’re building the most technologically advanced and authentic sports experience in history. FIFA 14 on next gen consoles will feel alive with players who possess human-like intelligence, reactions and instincts, players who move and behave like real athletes, and stadiums that buzz with electricity and excitement.
The AI in FIFA 14 will also be getting a boost. Players will now understand game situations and press more as the match draws on, and if a goal is needed, they rush to take a throw-in, corner or goal-kick if time is running down.

...and that's just for starters. FIFA 14 will also boast higher resolutions, more animations, hundreds of new skills, including new types of shots like side volleys, deflections and first time screamers, and new types of passes, such as touch, over-head, slice and lobs. Hundreds of new behaviors include trapping the ball in stride at pace, panic turns when defenders are beaten, off-balance shots, missed shot reactions, and more are a result of the massive increase in memory of the new consoles.

In short, your FIFA is going to get a whole lot shinier on the Xbox One.

FIFA 14 is set for a September 27th release for the Xbox 360. Details on the release of the Xbox One version will be coming shortly.
